What TPE Gloves are Made Of
TPE gloves are made of thermoplastic elastomers, polymers that can be molded more than once when heated. Thermoplastic elastomers also have the same elasticity as rubber.
Industrial fabricators classify thermoplastic elastomers as “specialty” plastic resins for two reasons. Firstly, they’re produced at lower volumes than “commodity” resins like polyethylene and at higher costs as well. Secondly, they’re used for more specialized applications than “commodity” resins.
Besides TPE gloves, products including adhesives and footwear are manufactured using thermoplastic elastomers.
TPE Glove Markets & Industries
Like CPE gloves, TPE gloves are designed for the food service and food processing industries.
When to Use TPE Gloves
TPE gloves are another excellent alternative for vinyl gloves since they’re less expensive. They’re also a good alternative for poly gloves.
TPE Glove Characteristics
TPE gloves, like CPE gloves, are known for their durability. They weigh less in grams than CPE gloves and are also flexible and resilient products.
